PLAYLIST FOR “EGO TRIP TRAVEL TIPS” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (6.15.19)

16 Jun

I couldn’t get to the studio this week. It turns out that GPS is useless when you’re taking an ego trip. So I went deep into the archives for a show that, sadly, is as relevant today as it was a few years ago. Maybe more. Of course, I added a few cautionary tales to the Ego Trip itinerary, and a few of these trips don’t exactly come in for a soft landing.

PLAYLIST FOR “OUT-SOURCING” (6.9.12)

10 Jun

These are perilous times, especially for anyone who hates cliches. However, to show my true patriotic stripes, tonight on Turntable For One in a demonstration of economic  austerity, I out-sourced all of the vocalists — to Canada. Not one of these vocalists was born in the U.S. of A., although many of them do have certain facial resemblances to actual Americans. Stay vigilant.
